Friendly and welcoming to our large party of people for three days. Throughout our stay they were always on hand if required and Terry and Jenny were lovely hosts - even when we got abit loud at times. Good bar and a hearty breakfast. Hope to see you next year!

Just returned from another 5 day stay at the Helmshore. The hotel is very clean and comfortable with everything you need in your room. The food is lovely especially the full English breakfast. The owners and their staff and really friendly and make you feel welcome. The hotel has a lift which is helpful for the elderly. There is a nice bar and entertainment lounge which we used regularly and the entertainment they put on for us was great, real party atmosphere. The hotel is just a few minutes from the town centre which is great. Look forward to our visit again next year.

What a fantastic stay my family have just had with Terry, Jenny and their whole family. They made us so welcome and they were amazing hosts, they were so kind and welcoming throughout the stay, nothing is too much trouble for them. I recommend this hotel to everyone!

This is a wonderful hotel in a good location. Jenny and Terry make you very welcome and nothing is too much trouble. Hotel is spotlessly clean. Lovely room, nice and warm. Really comfortable bed. Breakfast is first class. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Blackpool.
